I love many of Mr Smith's albums, but the 2 mentioned...simply give me goosebumps of infinite sadness and exquisite delight.
Love, faith...a funeral party
An extra insight into what lies deeper inside this album:
Some 30-odd years ago, after listening to the album a few thousand times, I took the uncharacteristic step of writing to Robert Smith to ask him "if you wrote this album from first hand experience, then how do you carry on? In what do you put your faith?". No reply. Years passed and I forgot I wrote that letter. Then, about three years later, I got a postcard from Japan, on it, a picture of John Wayne, who had recently died, as cowboy hero. I was baffled at first as it was signed 'Robert' and I know no one by that name personally. And the message seemed so disconnected, and almost threatening. Then the penny dropped! This was Robert Smith, then on tour with Sioxsie in Japan. An answer after all this time! Then it all made sense. In his reply he said simply "In death I suppose. Like this?" In my interpretation, a reference to 'Big' John Wayne and the fate of the hero, for what that was worth. We come into this world, and leave it, alone. In the space between life gives us occassional reminders and previews of that infinite isolation. Listening to this incredible album sets you down, lost and alone, in that singular place, when you truly have nothing left, but faith.
It is to easy to refer to any album as a classic by definition of its age and durability; but the true definition of a classic album is one that may not appeal immediately, but improves each time it is heard. I am afraid the clouding of time caused me to relegate this album to my things to buy list for far too long - and the cost was mine. This is a superb album, because it is quintessentially one of The Cure's finest albums; it represents the transition from the stark brilliance of "Seventeen Seconds" to the even more imposing and sublimely dark Gothic masterwork that is "Pornography", as the Three Imaginary Boys stand alone once more.
I did myself a great disservice by not buying this album before, but the Delux Edition carries with it the wonderful chance to listen to rarities and unreleased tracks, including the most delightful Charlotte Sometimes (I met a girl called Charlotte "Sometimes" at a N-I-N gig in July - Hi, Charlotte), this song being a personal favourite of mine.
I do not believe it is possible to identify a single Cure album as being a "Classic" because they are all classics in their own right - and this album is no exception.And, as I have found, I enjoy it more each time I listen to it (quod erat demonstrandum).
